Revolution is a powerful word. It conjures up images of change and often violent revolt. Our intention behind this festival is to create change within. The kind of change that can cause a revolution of the self, an awakening, an inner power, a force that can create change in your life, that can create change in others lives, that can create change in the world.
There is a lot going on in the world right now - much upheaval and change. Events such as shootings, gender inequality, and racism are but a small example of situations that can make us feel like things are spiraling out of control. This can make us feel scared and unhopeful. Like there there is nothing we can do.
Dance Medicine - Revolution is a festival that will help you to cultivate your inner strength, find your passion and turn any negative energy into a positive force that can strengthen both you and the community. Sometimes we underestimate the power we hold and world issues can make us forget that we have everything we need to make a change. That change must come from ourselves first! We are powerful beings, powerful beyond measure. Dance Medicine helps to strengthen your power. Reminding you that anything is possible.
Dance Medicine is about connections within our community. The power in the individual is strong. But the power within the collective is infinitely stronger. Connecting deeply with our community creates an inner strength, an inner stability that can help support us on our own journey and also helps us connect wth those who will help us go further, who will help us create, help us inspire and help us make change in ourselves, and ultimately the world.
This is a revolution. A Love revolution, a peaceful revolution. We seek to create change. We seek to cultivate strength, we seek to solidify our community, and together we will be strong. Together we can create the lives we wish to lead, together we can help others do the same. We can create ripples of love that will slowly roll out to the rest of this world, and beyond.

About the Venue
Trilogy Sanctuary is a conscious event space. We are a yoga studio by day, which evolves into a conscious event space at night.
We have two levels - a beautiful rooftop deck which is approx 2000 square feet, with views out to the ocean over La Jolla Village. On the rooftop level we have an indoor lounge and eco conscious boutique, and an organic, vegan restaurant and bar. On the lower level we have two large studios which open up to one huge space - 2400 square foot. We serve mostly non alcoholic beverages and elixirs. The only alcohol we serve is Boochcraft, an alcoholic kombucha. The 'scene' is a very health conscious, high vibe crowd.
The kind of events we have hosted in the past include monthly open mic nights, poetry and storytelling nights, we have a large monthly full moon party and drum circle, which attracts hundreds of people per event. We have started a new monthly event called Dance Medicine - which we call a conscious dance party. It involves ecstatic dance yoga, sound healing and then a night of dancing. For this event, thus far, we have had Govinda and Amani from the Desert Dwellers Djing. We are huge advocates for dance - encouraging self expression through the performing arts. We are a fully rigged space for Aerial and we have put on a number of Aerial and performance shows. We also have the space on the rooftop for fire dancing.
We are not a night club - we are actually a very unique concept - I am not sure you will find anything or anywhere else quite like this. We have expanded rapidly over the last two years and we are becoming one of San Diego's top spots for the conscious community. We are also involved in the burning man scene and this year we are providing and facilitating a whole camp - bringing our sanctuary space, our food and our workshops to the playa!
We love to create events that help to strengthen the community, and also events that can help inspire people on their own inward journey! We love to share and encourage wisdom, creativity, and a mind, body, spirit connection.
